tv The Last Word With Lawrence O Donnell MSNBC June 14, 2016 10:00pm-11:01pm PDT
and those two candidates are talking face to face, and the d.c. results, what this means for the democrats moving forward. be here with us, after the last word. 11:00 eastern. the last word starts right now. thank you very much. >> donald trump said he listened to president obama's speech today and he said he didn't understand anything that the president said. when someone as ignorant as donald trump said he didn't understand anything, you should believe him. >> it is time to grow up and figure this out. >> weapons of war have no place in our streets. >> she wants to take your guns away. >> i am not talking about being tough on terrorism. >> we have a radical islamic terrorism problem, folks. >> if someone thinks we don't know who we are fighting. >> he was more angry at me than
he was at the shooter. >> we don't need conspiracy theories and pathological self congratulations. >> when we acted out of fear, we came to regret it. >> you knew damn well i was a snake before you took me in. >> i will not demonize and declare war on an entire religion. >> where does this stop? >> the meeting with the national security council on fighting isis on the ground in the middle east, and preventing isis-inspired terrorism in the middle east. it is the kind of meetings, many pretends the president never has. the vice president, five members of the cabinet, secretaries of state, defense, homeland security, the attorney general,
the director of the feb. because the president is leading a multipronged attack against isis, today's meeting was held at the treasure department. in charge of cutting off the funding for isis. for over a year, they have refused to confirm the secretary under secretary of financial intelligence. >> it has been more than a year, 420 days, he still hasn't been given a full vote. there is no good reason for it. inexkisable. time for the congress to help keep our countly safe. >> of course, donald trump and his followers have no idea that that job exists in the treasury department. they have no idea that
republicans have refused to fill that job. it would never to donald trump and their followers, to accuse republicans for aiding and abetting, to fully cut off isises money. if donald trump is the next to fill the job, he will probably pick someone like the treasurer of his super pack, hofffenberg convicted of fraud once, and for one of the largest ponze. they choose to do nothing about domestic violence. president obama has enough enough of their tough talk. >> enough talking about being tough on terrorism.
actually be tough on teroimp, and stop making it easy to these westbounds to kill us. otherwise, despite extraordinary everythings by law these kinds of events going to keep on coming -- happening. >> the president that donald trump was blaming was ronald reagan. >> we don't know what we are doing, folks.
every year, wree bring in more than 100,000 lifetime immigrants, from the middle east. and many more from muslim countries outside of the middle east. a number of immigrants have hotile attitudes, it doesn't take a big percentage. >> look at this one horrible savage, look what he did, in a short period of time. >> donald trump's audience does not the shooter's parents came to the country in the 1980s, in 1986, the shooter was born an american citizen in new york city n queens just like donald trump. donald trump, whose mother was also an immigrant. because ronald reagan allowed the parents into the country and allowed them to stay here and have a baby. according to trump logic.
ronald reagan is the president to blame for what happened in orlando. hillary clinton at 49%, trump at 47. jim, that poll to, work backwards, gary johnson is included in these polls, he is pulling 9%. johnson is probably not yet, but probably will be on the ballot in 50 states. does it seem reasonable to you that he should be included in these polls? >> yes, i think so. i think it is part of the
calculus there are moments in the a campaign where you start to see really inside their souls, the average voter looks at the way doll ailed trump has behaved and said, wait a second. this is not the sflo i will you will see more of. >> the way he would have reacted in the respect -- he campaigned on xenophobia. one of his big themes, a golden opportunity.
that is what he is doing. >> listen to this. donald trump has been clear about what he won't do. he won't stand up to the gunlobby. i believe we protect our second amendment rights and making sure guns don't fall into the right hands. >> the gunman was the definition of the wrong hands. weapons of war have no place in our streets. make sure guns don't fall. we are going to protect our second amendment.
>> hello. everyone here at the walt disney world resort is devastated by this tragic accident. our thoughts are with the family. we are helping the family in doing everything we can to assist law enforcement. i'll turn it over to law enforcement at this time. thank you. [ inaudible question ] >> it is a male child. again, 2 years old. there were witnesses to what occurred here, and they have given us a fairly detailed information. so we've been actively searching now for the child for probably
about 3 1/2 to 4 hours. [ inaudible question ] >> well, there's a sandy beach area and the family was out just simply relaxing. they had another child and like a baby playpen that was in the area. they were simply relaxing out in the area and wading there in the water at the lake's edge at the time the alligator attacked the child. >> one at a time, please. >> did someone jump in the water to assist the child at this time? >> the father entered the water and tried to grab the child, was not successful in doing so. at some point, i'm told that the
mother may have also entered the water. so the parents diligently tried to get the child. they alerted a nearby lifeguard, who was there in the area, as well. but they were unsuccessful in their efforts. >> do you know how big the alligator was? [ inaudible ] >> are there signs that say alealer -- alligators in the area? >> there are signs that say no swimming. and the size, four to six feet. it's not precisely known how big the alligator is. >> are there alligators controlled in the area, do they try to prevent them? >> is that disney's responsibility? >> we will be investigating the entire activities here. again, we have not had any
recent reports or complaints about nuisance alligators in the area or any of that. so the investigation will play itself out. again, it will be a concurrent investigation between the sheriff's office and fish and wildlife. >> is it still open or closed off? >> at this point, we have areas secured until we complete our search efforts. [ inaudible ] >> a lot of that will depend on what happens for the next few hours. we're not leaving until we recover the child. [ inaudible ] >> we at this time, we don't have any security video. [ inaudible ] >> it's being reported a gator was seen in the area -- [ inaudible ] >> we don't have any reports oh
of that at the sheriff's office. >> so the parents were with the child holding the child or the child was? >> it's my understanding that the father was nearby and the child was playing in the water, just a foot or so into the water. and the alligator came up and attacked. >> he saw this happen? >> yes. and the father at some point struggled to try to get his son and was not successful. and then alerted others to try to assist him. >> has this ever happened before here? >> we have no record of this happening before. >> sheriff, can you describe the area again where this attack happened? >> this is the seven seas lagoon area, which is just adjacent to the hotel here at disney. >> people were staying in the hotel? >> the family is staying there, again, on vacation, i believe from the nebraska area. >> was there other people in the
water at the time? >> there were no other people in the water at the time. >> was this a very large lake? >> it's fairly sizable area. i can't tell you the acreage, but it is a fairly sizable area. [ inaudible ] >> i'm not exactly sure when they checked in. perhaps -- i don't know, jackie, if we know when did they check in? they arrived on the 12th. >> did you -- do we basically know that you have a father here who is trying to wrestle his 2-year-old son from a gator's mouth, is that what we're hearing or not? >> that's what you're hearing. that would be an accurate depiction of what we have talked about. >> do we have a death of the gator? [ inaudible ]
>> it's my understanding he may have some type of scratch, minor scratch or something on his hands. [ inaudible ] >> again, there was a lifeguard that was in the area, and there were other witnesses there nearby. someone dialed 911. [ inaudible ] >> i can't speak to that, but as the investigation goes on, we will have records. disney, i will tell you, is completely cooperating with this investigation. their priority is on recovering the child, and assisting this family tonight. [ inaudible ] >> well, we have marine units
out on boats. there's an alligator trapper that's out there. you probably have seen our helicopters overhead. they're searching, as well. we have our dive team on stand by here, and if they need to enter the water, they're able to do that. we brought out some of our sonar equipment so that we can continue to search this lake throughout. we're going to do that, even though it's dark. and hopefully we will successfully recover the child before daylight. if not, these efforts will continue until we do. >> what did the father say was the last thing he saw of his child? >> i haven't spoken directly to the father, so i can't tell you, other than he alerted the lifeguard to assist him, that an alligator had attacked his child. [ inaudible ] >> the -- at this time, the
father is being assisted by our victims advocates, and our investigators are interviewing them at this time, as we speak. >> do you know if the family has been down here in the past, is this like an annual trip for the family? >> i can't speculate on that at this time. hopefully we've given you enough information so you understand what we're dealing with. we will update you when we get new information. thank you all for being here. >> one other question. i know right now orlando is dealing with so much. [ inaudible ] >> well, we're doing our best to deal with all of the situations that we have going on here. but our staff is very resilient, and tonight, they're very --
focused, if you will, on assisting this family. thank you. >> all right. we have been listening to the orange county florida sheriff there. this is such a heartbreaking story that we simply don't know the outcome as of yet. while we're very hopeful, let me set the stage for you. we understand according to sheriff official there is, a family from nebraska was visiting disneyland. they were staying at the grand floridian hotel, on the disney world property there. it is adjacent to the seven seas lagoon. this family was having a relaxing day by the sandy beach area, and the father and 2-year-old son were near the water, wading into just a little bit of water there, and we understand, according to officials, an alligator came up and took the child. the father tried to get the child from the alligator, was
unsuccessful. search teams have been looking between three and four hours for the child. as we know, time is of the essence, especially in a situation like this. we understand that family, as soon as this happened, and tried to get their child and was unsuccessful, they alerted a nearby lifeguard. at this point, though, we have been told there are signs in the area that said no swimming. as for how large this alligator might be, a lot of speculation here, because no one can be for sure until they find it. they're saying between 4 and 7 feet. so this could be a fairly large alligator. and they're going to be searching through the night, as you heard officials say there, looking for this 2-year-old child. again, a family just visiting, like many families do at walt disney world. they come, they try to have a great time at the happiest place on earth and they were just spending the day together in the seven seas lagoon, wading in some water there, when we're
being told that an alligator came up and took the 2-year-old child, despite efforts by the parents to try to rescue it from that alligator. at this hour, search teams are in the water. we understand there is a trapper in the water. a dive team is on stand by. helicopters are in the air, as well. providing light and trying to shine some kind of light on what seems like from just the wholistic part of this picture, could be a dim situation, especially as the time keeps ticking by. again, just as a mother myself, listening to this, this is just heartbreaking to hear. i cannot even begin to imagine what this family is going through right now. we saw there, there was a representative in that press conference from walt disney world saying that disney, of course, is devastated by this news and they are with the family right now and doing everything they can to assist that family.
but time is of the essence, and a search is currently under way at this hour for a 2-year-old who has been taken there by an alligator in walt disney world in florida. we will continue to follow this story and bring you the latest. but now back to "last word with lawrence o'donnell." >> unplugged what it means to be american. when you're talking after a disaster like we just seen in orlando, and you get at the issues, both the great number of hispanics that were enjoying their livelihood in orlando in a gay bar and both men and women, and you had a frustrated and obviously there's a lot to look at in omar mateen, whether it was self-hate or being radicalized by isis, that to demean a whole class of people and think that's going to make you stronger is insane. let's call it what it is, it's
very unlevel. >> listen to what hillary clinton said today about the use of this term "radical islam," reducing it in her view to magic words. let's listen to this. name calling, from my name calling, from my perspiskic, it matters what you do or say. >> it mattered that we goot. >> jack rice, on the marlt of what we do in this fight? >> not once. is this is about what we actually do.

nbc news project that is hillary clinton has won the final primary, held here in washington, d.c. today. a meeting between secretary clinton and bernie sanders in washington has just ended. joining us now is christen. what do we know about the length of that meeting and what happened there. >> reporter: it was a lengthy meeting, they met for a little over a hour and a half. they left without answering questions, a number of questions were shouted to him. he had a big smile on his face when he left the hilton. this was a high stakes meeting, lawrence.
both campaigns had measured expectations, they didn't know that sanders was going to concede, this could set the course for house and clpds -- he wants more staffing, and bigger asks, he wants to get rid of center demigates, and called for debbie wasserman to go. she said that is not going to happen. iz spoke with some of sanders' top officials, he is going to stay in the race through the convention, to fight he made it clear, he does want to take hillary to take on donald trump.
have a similar meeting, it was at the home of sairnt finestein's house, this is a hotel, a stone's throw away from the mouse. there were top officials in that meeting with secretary clinton and senator sands that is one of the questions we are trying to determine. highly choreographed as they try to work it. >> what the he told her about his plans. ♪jake reese, "day to feel alive"♪

the shooter messaged him on a gay chat and dating app, called jacked. he told chris hayes he recognized it from grinder. >> ammann. >> yes, lawrence, as this investigation continues to widen. a key part of that is going to be focused on the wife of omar mateen. the question, what did he know, when did she know it. there is now indication that she told the fbi, she was with her husband when he bought the ammunition, and driven him too the pulse on various locations. there was a flurry of activity not long ago.
we knew that nur was staying here, we saw a vehicle pull out, bundled up in the front car, was an individual, we believe it to be her. it appears, the person was completely covered up. the vehicle drove off for a few minutes, before coming back with just mr. sedek, nobody else was in the karat that time. i spoke to him with his house. as i said, he regrets what is happening, i asked him whether he felt that his daughter-in-law could have prevented the attack. if she would be arrested. and he said he was confident that law enforcement would make the right decision. they are going to make whatever
decision they need to make. as to where she is right now. if she is still speaking to the fbi, he would object comment. whenever they call, he is makes himself available. we believe that fbi is not only speaking to her directly, wants to speak to extended members of her family, believed to be in northern california. you can imagine, the investigation focusing on the wife, what she knew, when she knew it and if she could have done anything to prevent what happened at the pulse night club. >> up next, a friend of one of the victims, joins us from orlando.

my fraternity. i guess i stuck out like a sore thumb. i was dressed like an easter egg. and i was by myself, and eddie comes up and said, what's going on. and he had this kindest eyes, the most incredible smile, and this twinkle in his eye. he made me feel welcome. we are fast friends. both named eddie, both hispanic. he was like, i can tell that you are new to being gay, and he is like, let me give you a hint here. he said, it might be cool to look like an easter egg in your fraternity house, you should get
tighter fitting jeans and a t-shirt next time you come out. he played a special role in my life, in a time when i was struggling. with my identity and sexuality. there was a point in my life where i was so ashamed of who i was, i didn't want to live anymore. you know, he was there for me. he kept me from jumping off my balcony once. he was a hero, he was a hero before saturday night, he saved his boyfriend, and kept his boif friend from coming back into the club and getting shot. and eddie was shot in the back, i found out at 6:00 a.m., i don't know, i woke up early
sunday morning, i go to my phone, check out news and face book, i see that eddie was shot. i immediately started calling people. heard maybe he would be okay. that this happened, and the shooting, and i posted his picture, and everything, i got an incredible response. then, somebody said, turn on the tv, when i turned on the tv, he was the first name. seeing his name in writing killed me. my stomach was in knots, and i was overwhelmed with grief, was terrible.
>> eddy, could you tell us, what it was that you learned about how he saved his boyfriend? what was that that happened in the shooting where he was able to save his boyfriend? they were very close with the management and the owners of pulse. they were were actually, it was the end of the night. they were going to go to the home of one of the managers, whatever, they were hanging out with the pulse crowd, the staff. his boyfriend was loading things, relating to the people in there t whatever. that was right when the shooting started. and when his boyfriend, luis knew what was going on, he wanted to go back in the club. eddie kept texting him. he said, fingerprint it wasn't
for eddie being insistent, calling and texting, and keeping the boyfriend out, saying he was safe, he was going to make it out there, the boyfriend would have come back in. he wanted to go and try to help. so, eddie kept him alive. he is, he is unconsolable right now. before he was a hero there, he was my personal hero. i am horrified telling these personal details, i am a private person. it is important to get the story out. how important he was. he was taken from us. he wasn't just important to me. he was important to so many in the community. so well known. he worked in management for the largest gay travel agency in the country. in the gay community, gay travel is a big thing it is a big thing for gays to travel and vacation together in groups.
he knew people all over the country and all over the world. i have heard stories over the past couple of days, he helped other people who came to terms, and were new to accepting being gay, and helping them make friends and taking them out and stuff. he was special to so many. >> thank you for sharing your friend eddie's story with us. we are sorry for your loss. >> thank you. with booking.com's range of properties, rebel and key can wing it all the wato jordan and chelsea's wedding. rumble! road trip. there she is. uh oh, oh, oh, oh, what? so here is our road trip itinerary. what's this? a bunch of different places... nah, bro. weotta go off-script. rip to shreds every motel, cabin d teepee,

very positive, end quote. we will have a live 11:00 special at the top of the hour. o severelcerative colitis, the possibility of a flare was almost always on my mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it undecontrol when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. and cancers, including mphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problem serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. te yr doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores.
don't starhumira if you have an infection. raise your expectations. asyourastroenterologt about humira. with humira, control is possible. sgloe it is important for us to not be on the red team or the blue team but be on the american team. will responsible leaders, stand up to their presumptive nominee.
i am sure they would rather avoid that question all together, history will remember what we do in this moment. >> senator, you have endorsed hillary clinton for president. will responsible republican leaders come forward in this time and situation, with this nominee, of their party, that she believes responsible republican leaders should not be supporting. what would you say to the current leaders of your party about their support for donald trump? >> well, a lot of them say they will not vote for him and leave it blank. that is a great mistake. at the end of the day, we have to choose one or the other. we have to look at the policy.
there is the gun control policy, there is the deficit. secretary clinton is running as the fiscal conservative, as far as military spending and a lot of other things, there is the issue of religious freedom. the new york times had an article, i am a mormon. there is a serious issue of religious freedom, if we segregate musmims, we have a lot of third and fourth generation muslims in the southwest. overall, i think it will be a serious election, and people have to look at the policies, if they choose not to vote in the presidential race. i haven't gotten so many criticism from fellow republicans, that i have gotten that they started to wish they could do that.
they say they will not vote. if so many don't vote in the presidential race, it may go the wrong way. >> you travelled a long road, when bill clinton wases in the white house, you were opposed to hillary clinton's income tax rate. >> your policies have changed? >> in some ways they have not. i was -- we haven't had the mass shootings and size of the deficit. it is secretary clinton, who is the only one who proposed a comhence hiv.
we spent mononny military, there are ways to streamline it she has put putting a plan others want to support. there is no perfect candidate, at the end of the day, operating in the two-party. all the things came together to call me to endorse secretary clinton. >> you will be trying to get others to join? >> i am busy doing other things, that is my question. we have to be careful. i wrote a paper, we are headed in the terms of a toxic environment. we need to correct it. live coverage continues now
